Urban Forest Tree Planting Program

Planting of public trees will be prioritized based on the following urban forest metrics, environmental need and human need:

  • Tree age diversity and planting space availability (planting vacancies)
  • Population density and average age
  • Proximity to schools and early learning centers
  • Urban heat island effect
  • Transport corridors and their associated air pollution

Immediately below are maps representative of Santa Monica's tree planting program for 2017 through 2021:
